Hello and sorry to hear you're having trouble with the tv,

If you've replaced both those boards then we'd be down to a fault in the lcd panel (screen) itself.

That is not possible to fix, the panel itself would actually have to be replaced, which is really never feasible, even for a new tv. This is a 2008 model, well over double its service life, and simply not worth further investment. It would cost twice as much to fix, assuming a panel could even be found which is highly unlikely, than it would to buy a brand new and updated LED tv with a fresh warranty.

My apologies for the news,

Eldon
